  1. There is no doubt that in 1918, when Georgia declared its independence under the German protectorate, the flag of Georgia was too similar to the flag of Kaiser Germany. For instance, for comparison look at these two flags. The flag of the Democratic Republic of Georgia was also the flag of the "second" Republic of Georgia, when Georgia regained independence in 1991. (comparison of German and Georgian flags)

  4. Hello friends, I want to share a photo of Order of Queen Tamara. This award belonged to a famous Georgian politician and public figure of the late 1800s- Niko Nikoladze. Niko Nikoladze was the honorary chairman of the National Democratic Party of Georgia (1917-1921). He took an active part in the socio-economic life of the newly created Georgian republic. His signature is on the Act of Independence of Georgia (1918).

  6. Hello, I want to share with you another photo of Friedrich Werner von der Schulenburgh with Queen Tamara Order
  7. Photo of Friedrich Werner von der Schulenburgh from the Museum of Soviet Occupation of Georgia (Tbilisi). He is wearing Order of Queen Tamara. The photo was taken in Tbilisi in 1918. Below a mans photo in a suit- Mikhail Tsereteli, one of the leaders of the Committee of the Liberation of Georgia
  8. I want to share my opinion on the name of the award, why was it named the Order of Queen Tamara? Or why was the image of the Georgian queen Tamar Bagrationi (Tamar the Great of Georgia) in the center of the award? Here are some points. First of all, during the reign of Queen Tamar, Georgia was the most powerful empire in history. ( for more evidence, I attached a photo of Georgian kingdom during the reign of Queen Tamar of Georgia, from 1184 to 1213). So, the image of Queen Tamara at the award symbolized Georgia in its independent and most powerful period. Secondly, historical
  9. It's true that the Georgian Royal House use the Tamara Award version with the royal crown but as far as I have information and I know, initially Georgian Royal House used Tamara Award without royal crown and it was like this version, which was shown by user: Pat66: Initially, in the 1950s, the head of the Georgian Royal Family, prince Irakli Bagration-Mukhraneli reorganized the order of St. Tamara exactly as this version, which was used by the Union of Georgian Traditionalists. The “royal crown” detail at the top of Tamara’s award was in the later Georgian Royal Family Tamara or
  10. Hello! This model is issued 100% after WWII time. This kind of Tamara award models were issued by the Georgian Royal Family in exile.
  11. Schulenburg was a great person. He had written notes of the Anthem of the first Republic of Georgia in his notebook. I saw pictures of his notes some times ago. He loved and supported Georgia very much Friedrich-Werner Graf von der Schulenburg with his puppy in front of the German consulate building in Tiflis (Tbilisi) 1910s p.s. I like this pic so much
  12. I think also the same. Another version of the Tamara Award Certificate. This certificate is also bilingual but as I understand it is written in Georgian and French languages. The certificate was issued by the Committee of the Liberation of Georgia in Constantinople (Istanbul) on May 1, 1917. A very interesting thing is the head of the certificate is decorated with Tamara Award and with the flags of Georgian legion
  13. I want to share some materials from my electronic archive regarding the Queen Tamara military award. Bilingual Tamara Award Certificate (written in Georgian and German languages). The certificate was issued by the Committee of The Liberation of Georgia around 1917-1918. ( I think it was probably issued in 1918, before the official declaration of independence of Georgia from Russian Empire ( 26 May, 1918) ). Recipient of the award and certificate was Romanian lieutenant - Bodo von Konig. The document is signed by officials of the Committee of The Liberation of Georgia: 1) Prince Ge
